Laura Peña-Telfer: Nuestra Comunidad: Leveraging Latinx families' funds of knowledge to inform inclusivity and care in a STEM program.
From Dana Salter
This sequential quant →QUAL, mixed methods study utilized the Parental Engagement of Families from Latino Backgrounds (PEFL) survey and semi-structured interviews to investigate the ways in which Latinx parents engage with their daughters’ STEM learning experiences and the ways in which Latinx parents perceive their role and the school’s role in their daughter’s education. Results from this study will be employed to co-construct a counterspace that will serve as a platform for Latinx families to help create a more inclusive space at STEMinist Academy and leverage their funds of knowledge to inform an inclusive STEM curriculum for Latinx middle school girls.
